Monticello Association

The Monticello Association was founded in 1913 to care for, preserve, and continue the family graveyard at Monticello. It is a non-profit organization whose members include the lineal descendants of Thomas Jefferson, 3rd president of the United States, and his wife Martha Wayles Skelton Jefferson. Jefferson was the designer, builder, owner, and, with his family, first residents of Monticello in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Famous quotes containing the words monticello and/or association:

    As the term of my relief from this place [Washington, D.C.] approaches, it’s drudgery becomes more nauseating and intolerable, and my impatience to be with you at Monticello increases daily.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    In this great association we know no North, no South, no East, no West. This has been our pride for all these years. We have no political party. We never have inquired what anybody’s religion is. All we ever have asked is simply, “Do you believe in perfect equality for women?” This is the one article in our creed.
    Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906)
